I am chairing a one-day UCLA conference on Thursday, January 24, 2014 on current and future ways to use technologies among communities at risk for HIV. The conference, sponsored by CHIPTS and the UCLA AIDS Institute, will focus on how social media and mobile technologies are being used to address community health disparities, especially focused on HIV and drug-related prevention and treatment.
A keynote speaker (TBA) will present on the current future ways that technologies are being integrated into community health. We'll then have panel discussions on researchers presenting their work on how social media and health can be used for community-level HIV prevention, followed by debates between developers and community activists/policy researchers on the privacy and ethical issues that need to be addressed when using these technologies.
The event will take place at the California Endowment at 1000 N. Alameda Street from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Please email me if you're interested in requesting an invite or want more information.
